XXXTENTACION's debut mixtape Revenge has officially been certified gold by the RIAA. The project was released on May 16th, 2017. Revenge consisted of seven previously unreleased songs as well as his breakout hit, "Look At Me!" which peaked at number 34 on the Billboard Hot 100. The RIAA certified the mixtape gold on March 6th along with his single, "BAD!"
In other XXXTENTACION-related news, the producer of "Look At Me!" is suing the late rapper's estate. Jimmy Duval is taking XXXTENTACION's estate to court for $1M over unpaid royalties. Although Duval intended on keeping the matter private, he said that his credit as the song's producer was removed, meaning he couldn't get his royalties. Duval made it clear that he wasn't trying to tarnish X's legacy in any way. He said the $1M lawsuit is about fairness more than anything else since he was an integral part of the song's creation which helped launch X's career.
